Turned out lovely
Well the wedding was yesterday and it turned out lovely. So lovely that it was too hot for tights and the azaleas will have to wait.
Instead I got a magnificent post of my 4 year old niece, a whirling disco princess NW. Dressed in spectacular stripes. She is a future fashion blogger herself and is so stylish already that she coloured in this fairy with matching legwear to her own.
On a Winning Streak
The cherry has just been placed on top of the cake because I’m on a winning streak.
It seems I’m back on the horse and hosiery blogging is still on solid ground. It’s roughly my two year anniversary and to celebrate I’ve managed to win a competition! Yay! Yippee! So check out loveyourlegs for some fabulous tights. The prize will be shown as soon as I receive them, woo hoo double enjoyment, I’ll be getting a package through the post, so stay tuned.
Leg Warmers, I’m making them hip for next season
Leg Warmers, I’m making them hip for next season. I’ve always been ahead of the style curve, so hip that no one really notices that the trends of today, I was seeking or wearing a few years ago. Maybe that should possibly push me into the eccentric world rather the trendsetter circle. Hmmm!
Sooo, what’s with the leg warmers? Have I taken up fitness… no. Have I become obsessed with nostalgia and started to binge watch old series of Fame… no, even though I do fly! Do I have a friend as mad as me who challenged me to knit my own but then went out to get me some to make me feel better… yes!!! Like me she’s a girl with the same trendsetter (eccentric) style, and bought me bright, wacky, stripey designs. So everyday I got a special package in the post. Now I will be the brightest patient on the chemo ward! Thank you to my lovely, good friend Maz!!!
Matching monochrome stripes today. Ok maybe not the ones I’m wearing but certainly the small version are. Again modelled by my 6 year old niece, a fetching pair of tights for her Book Week “The Worse Witch” costume.
Mine, were part of a Christmas present package. They had an impressive wide waistband for comfort. Quite stretchy. Good!
First for 2017
The first for 2017 has been these from my Christmas present stack. Thick cotton tights from Vincent Creation. Black and grey stripes, because hey, if a girl is house bound when the time to go for a PET/CT scan arrives I must be seen!
I think the lack of social interactions has made my style sense go off a bit. You’ll see in some posts the absence of any coordination but see it my way I can wear anything I want because no one can see me.
Stripey red socks
I’m off work this week so I don’t have to look smart so I look silly instead with these stripey red socks. Hey it is the extended Halloween season. They kept me warm and I kinda looked groovy too. Just one problem with socks, they fall down and need pulling up. Especially when I walk the dog but I do pull them over my knees because of my short legs. It’s for that extra cosiness.
It was grey and a bit chilly yesterday when I woke up so saw it as a hosiery wearing day, the rainbow fishnets came out! These are Leg Avenue, rainbow fishnet holdups.
They were a rainbow fine fishnet with a larger black fishnet on top, cleverly constructed into one stocking. They did not have any silicon at the top so I had to rely on pure elastic to hold them up. They did fall a little and because of the elastic thigh high they felt like I was wearing a humongous pair of socks rather than sleek stockings. I would recommend them to anyone if they were going out to party or fancy dress but not really all day wear, unless you were a serious goth.
Skulls socks today, since you and I have established that socks are indeed part of the hosiery family. 😆
I’ve had these for years. Bought off the local market. I wear socks when it’s cold but I don’t want to feel too imprisoned. Being on my feet all day has caused my calves to be comparatively muscular and large so I do feel that socks do get a bit stretched over that area. Just me being self concious, but it’s never stopped me developing the hoseoffun style.

Bacara 05 by Gabriella today.
Here’s the straight on view,
So a spiral pattern throughout the leg broken up with geometric shapes along the side making an unusual and eye catching pattern.
They felt a bit scratchy when I put them on but I have been wearing some quite glamorous hosiery lately and the feeling wasn’t uncomfortable just different.
